Mason jars are my new obsession. I want to get some bigger ones to make more stuff in them, like salads. For now, I just have the half-pint size, which are perfect for breakfast on the go.
I've mentioned a few times that I am trying to eat cleaner, so last weekend, I made this:
Overnight Oatmeal (recipe found here)
I ended up making one serving, which would be enough to fill a pint-sized mason jar, and divided it up between two of my half-pints to make two days' worth at a time. It could not have been any easier to make - it literally took me five minutes.
It was SO good that I wished I had a whole pint of it, but half the serving is still a good amount of food! It tasted just as great when I ate the other half on the second day, too.
I used almond milk as suggested in the recipe, and could definitely taste it - but I like it, so that worked out. This week, I might try making it with real milk to see if I like it that way better. This is my new favorite breakfast for taking to school - it is nice to switch it up from my usual yogurt and granola!
I'm also planning to try different flavors (dried cherries and blueberries, no cinnamon, etc.) - what flavors would you make?? I'd love to hear your ideas so I can try them out!!
